You cannot be serious.

Jon Jones’ comeback has been halted once again after reports surfaced on Tuesday that he failed a drug test following his UFC 214 victory over Daniel Cormier.

“The longtime UFC light heavyweight champion tested positive for a banned substance in an in-competition USADA test in relation to his fight with Daniel Cormier on July 29 in Anaheim, Calif., and has been provisionally suspended, sources told MMA Fighting. In that bout, Jones defeated Cormier by third-round TKO to regain the UFC light heavyweight belt.

Jones has been stripped of the title and Cormier will get it back, per TMZ, which was the first outlet to report the news. TMZ reported that Jones tested positive for the steroid turinabol, which carries a two-year suspension from USADA for first-time offenders and longer for multiple-time offenders.”

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Jones has been down this road. Most of you will remember that he tested positive before a bout with Cormier at UFC 200 in July 2016.
Jones was suspended and and served a one-year ban by USADA for testing positive for two banned substances.
